My Desktop-System contains a Radeon RX580 and a monitor which supports AMD Freesync. Kernel 5.0 brought improvements here, I’ve read. Is all of this backported to Leap 15.1, or should I stay on Tumbleweed? Leap seems to be a bit faster, when I look at some benchmarks from phoronix.
Where could I look up such information?
Thanks all in advance!
- AFAICS, no, it’s not documented.
- I raised a Bug Report against the Release Notes around this issue –
Within the discussion within that Bug Report, it became clear that, the SUSE employees who are responsible for the openSUSE Leap Kernel (which is also the SLE Kernel … ) are introducing backports “as needed” to the “4.12” Leap 15.x Kernels – the support for the newer AMD GPUs is being included in those backports …
There’s possibly a mailing-list which is tracking the AMD support to the Leap 15.x Kernels but, I do not know which one it is …
Thank you very much! Is this a public bug? Could you share a link? I could not find it…
Bug #1127904: “AMD Ryzen CPUs - Kernel version”.
In the meantime, I’ll stick to Tumbleweed
